Sir Mouse to the Rescue
Mouse has a sword. She wears a suit of armour. She is a knight. She is bold Sir Mouse. Dragon does not have a sword. She does not wear a suit of armour. She is just Dragon. Knights fight dragons. But Mouse and Dragon never fight each other. Mouse and Dragon are best friends. Join Mouse and Dragon as they rescue Prince, outwit Cat, have a fancy dress party and find out all about friendship, knighthood and the true meaning of happy every after. A book of bold adventures and funny tales for emerging readers, both boys and girls. The splendid illustrations in Sir Mouse to the Rescue, using collage and paper cutting techniques, demonstrate Pottie’s extraordinary craftsmanship and patience.
“Children and adults alike will recognise and warm to the delightfully portrayed friendship between audacious Mouse and thoughtful, acquiescent Dragon. We’ve all observed Mouse-Dragon friendships. In fact, most of us are either Mouse or Dragon at one time or another ...” – Johanna Knox
